Happy holidays from GRT and from the Gymratt and his family, yeah baby it was great.
So what does a guy who has an awesome family, the greatest of friends, and who has a great life want for Christmas, let me tell you, BOOKS, books and more books. Written and recorded, let me tell you Trainer T scored huge, (and actually a new pair of sneekers).
The first one I broke into was actually a title Sandy had just found on a friends list on of all places, Facebook. Yes I was surprised to say the least, however when something, a topic or an exercise, or diet or whatever starts coming up multiple times, it really is time to check it out, which I did. And then all of the reviews raved about this new business book I was all over it, good move on my part.
“Brains on Fire”, is a new one, just out 2010 is classified as a, 1-Word- of- mouth advertising, 2-Business referrals, 3-Consumer satisfaction, business book, but let me tell you so far it is wayyyyyy more than that. It is a god send for me, and I hope with its help to me an enlightened or as they say “igniter” for you.
As the book says right from the beginning it’s not about tech, although tech is cool, it is about people, yep, imagine this everybody, people. Stop focusing on the technobabble gadgetry and lets get right down to it, it’s all about us, people!
Dang who would have thought, to be successful in business, dream large, develop that passion and take care of people, WOW! Its an epiphany.
Building a startup has been one of the coolest things I personally have ever done, and yes we have a very long way to go, however it’s a blast. By reading many books, learning about how much you will really learn, is inspiring (does that make any sense).
Helping others to get to their inner “yen”, finding that desire, now that’s really cool.
When you see things in print that you have stumbled across and implemented just because it felt right, well that my friends is my “yen”.
Sharing the passion to improve, writing the daily positive affirmations, building a mastermind group, just collaborating to do something to help all, now that is my “yen”, and “Brains on Fire” is all over it.
It is all about you, the people who follow our startup, the people that want to improve their lives their QOL, (quality of life), the people who just want to feel better. I just want us at GRT to be the catalyst, the igniter as stated earlier, the people who help plant that seed.
As Jim Collins stated in his book “Good to Great”, (one of my tapes and now Christmas book presents), just keep pushing the flywheel everybody, just keep pushing. We can talk about the “hedgehog” another time, for now go and buy “Brains on Fire“.
Thanks as usual for your time and reading, we love you all, and your time is so appreciated, enjoy the video and go and buy the book!
